Webinar - Developing Leaders Across the Globe: Why One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Date: December 13, 2012, 2:00 p.m. ET / 19:00 GMT
Presenter: Karen O'Leonard, Director and Principal Analyst; and Dr. Katherine Jones, Director and Principal Analyst
Additional Details:
As corporations continue to expand globally, organizations are challenged to develop effective leaders across the globe. The once- popular expat model of transferring leaders into other regions has come under increasing scrutiny, prompting many companies to employ a ‘grow your own’ model of developing stronger leaders within a region.

But leaders in different countries have different skills sets, styles and competencies - which is why a standardized approach to leadership development will not work. In this presentation, Karen and Katherine will describe how leaders differ across countries and the implications for effective leadership development.

In this presentation you will learn:

• How leadership styles vary from country to country
• How organizations can leverage different strengths and styles to build more effective leadership teams
• How organizations can create effective leadership development programs for a global workforce
